UMIND

UMIND is a national knowledge exchange platform that contains generous contributions from child and youth mental health treatment and resource centres across Canada. The free and secure website offers access to practical tools, promising interventions and a network of child and youth mental health professionals. Its goal is to give professionals more time to provide direct service to children, youth and their families as they spend less time developing programs and searching for promising interventions. UMIND is the result of a partnership between Lutherwood and Kids’ Health Links Foundation.
